Wine Review: This ruby colored red blend that I discovered at the Boston Wine Expo is a terrific value at $20. It opens with a very attractive blueberry and red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, very well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and blackberry blend with notes of spice and black pepper. The finish is dry and its tannins are rather dry and lengthy. This wine would go real well with a thick cut of prime rib. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Quarry Butte is an elegantly expressive five varietal blend that packs a punch for the value, capturing the unique terroir of Destiny Ridge. It is loaded with aromatics of vanilla, dried herbs and ripe with berry flavors, rich tannins, hints cedar and elegant oak-spice that lead to a balanced structure and lengthy finish.
